Dancer and choreographer, Csaba Molnár strives for reconciling radical extremes. His main interest is to explore how different ways of expression, when juxtaposed, may transform the most private phenomena of human life into a universal and liberating theatrical experience.
He began his professional training at the Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy, and completed his dance education with a two year programme at P.A.R.T.S in Brussels. Soon afterwards he joined the Italian dance company Compagnia Virgilio Sieni, and in 2010 became a member of the Hungarian company Hodworks.
Molnár has worked as a co-creator of Bloom!, a collective of five (City, Tame Game, The End is Near), and later on pursued a similar creative collaboration with the group Dányi-Molnár-Vadas (Skin Me). As an artist in residence he worked with the students of the Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy (Merriment) and created a piece for the EN-KNAP Group (68). He participated in ‘HOM’ at TanzMainz.
His own choreographic works include KITTY2012, Decameron and The ox. Together with dancer and choreographer Marcio Kerber Canabarro he started the artistic project Sildenafil Fairy with which they have presented Tropical escape, EYE Candy and Winter Journey. Csaba Molnár is co-creator of eight pieces that received the annual Rudolf Lábán Award for the best Hungarian contemporary dance performance of the season, and he has performed and co-created six pieces which have been selected by Aerowaves.
